Marketing a Credit Union Business

At Gaebler, we've seen what great marketing can do for a small business. But if you own a credit union business, exceptional marketing may well be the determining factor in your long-term survival and success.

Looking for the right marketing mix for your credit union business? That's becoming a common theme these days, especially in this market sector.

Marketing increases the brand footprint of a credit union business through a diverse range of marketing channels and mediums.

Coupons

Think you know all there is to know about coupling? Maybe not, at least when it comes to using coupons for credit union business marketing. Although there are various ways to utilize coupons, the universal objective is to increase traffic, revenue and market exposure. In a typical coupon scenario, credit union business marketers leverage couponing to entice first-time customers to make initial contact with the brand. To improve the impact of your campaigns, routinely monitor local online and offline marketing channels to learn about the types of coupon offers that are common in your geography.

Generating Buzz

Never underestimate the value of good buzz with consumers. Whether you call it viral marketing or word-of-mouth advertising, a lot of ground can be gained by encouraging positive conversations about your company. For a credit union business, meaningful brand conversations have the ability to transform the impact of your marketing efforts. To encourage marketplace conversations, you'll need to equip consumers with the tools they need to create meaningful brand dialogues. With minimal effort, you can instigate conversations through social media and other communication vehicles favored by today's consumers.

Media Monitoring

Some marketing initiatives lend themselves to simple measurement while others are more challenging. Direct mail can be evaluated by tallying the cost of inputs (e.g. a premium mailing list, printing, postage, etc.) and measuring the number of customer responses you receive from the campaign. The difficulty comes when you are tasked with quantifying market presence and brand influence. Fortunately, media monitoring has the ability to give your credit union business a sense of market presence and other variables that are difficult to quantify. If executed properly, media monitoring can help your brand get ahead of negative messaging and exert greater influence over news cycles.
